Kailey & Russell Dickerson

Season 1, Ep. 2

Kailey and Russell Dickerson met during their undergraduate studies at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. Kailey hails from Wisconsin, and brought her midwestern charm to the south, where her and Russell became fast friends. They married on May 5, 2013. These days, they spend a lot of time together traveling around the United States, with Russell performing at sold out shows and Kailey capturing it all from behind her camera lens. They’ve been a power couple for years, supporting each other and growing together, but, before Russell was selling out stadiums, he and Kailey were newlyweds just trying to pay the bills and pursue their dreams. This is their story.

Hunter McGrady & Brian Keys

Season 1, Ep. 17
Hunter McGrady and Brian Keys married on June 16, 2019. You can spot Hunter McGrady, model and body positive activist, on the cover of the latest issue of The Knot Magazine, which hits newsstands July 29, 2019. Brian was introduced to Hunter through her Snapchat account—by another woman who he was on a first date with at the time! Brian didn't go on a second date with that particular lady, but, months later, he did boldly slide into Hunter’s DMs. Brian got a sense of Hunter's humor and personality through her engaging and fun Snapchat stories. Hunter got to know Brian through a long series of direct messages, eventually becoming Facebook friends before they met IRL while she was visiting New York City on a work assignment. The duo finally met up in person after months of digital correspondence. They experienced a strong initial connection, so much so that their first date ended up lasting three days. A few months of dating convinced Hunter to move to NYC so her and Brian could be together in the same place. A few years later, and now Hunter and Brian are happily married. They recently hosted a stunning wedding celebration in Southern California where they put their own spin on conventional traditions including Hunter's wedding fashion, which was custom made for her style and body, their vows, and Hunter's first dance with her father. Tune in to find out what they did to create a celebration that was uniquely their own, reflecting their personalities, style and personal values. On today’s episode, the newlyweds take us through their love story and wedding planning journey, and Hunter shares empowering advice for loving the body you're in. You'll also get a sneak preview of what's available in The Knot Fall 2019 Fashion Issue, our most inclusive fashion issue to date, featuring Hunter McGrady as a guest editor.
